Luke Goodness, CF


Luke Goodness, CF, has been associated with equine veterinarians and the farrier shop his entire life. He nailed his first shoe at age 10 and has been shoeing horses in some capacity ever since that day.

Seeking a broader and more formal educational experience, Luke moved to Oklahoma and graduated from 5 Star Farrier school late in 2010. He spent some time in Colorado working as a farrier shoeing ranch horses but eventually decided to return to Virginia, joining the Forging Ahead team and beginning a full-time farriery practice in this area.

Luke successfully completed his American Farrier’s Association (AFA) certification in 2009 and is now working towards an AFA Journeyman certification.
